Living Nature Eye Shadow Duo - A Review For My Pure

My second My Pure review this month is of a make up item. My experience with 'natural' make up brands has been a mixed on some things I've loved, some things just haven't cut the mustard. This time I decided to try a different brand so I chose something by Living Nature. Founded over 20 years ago in her native New Zealand by Suzanne Hall Living Nature rapidly became New Zealand's most popular natural toiletry and cosmetic brand. Highly respected worldwide for their purity Living Nature's products are created by using natural ingredients, they contain no synthetic ingredients and are both animal product free and they aren't tested on animals.

The product I chose was an eyeshadow duo - the compact comes boxed in a grey / black textured box

The compact itself is made of a carboard material and inside it features an inspirational message - mine in this case was "Breathe"

As with most eyeshadow compact you get two little foam applicators, they aren't bad if your in a hurry, but I personally prefer to use a proper brush - there was a choice of 5 duo reflecting all of the most propular colour groups, but the duo I chose was Beaches.

Made using natural minerals from the Earth this is a  proper neutral duo, it contains a light peach / pink based nude, and a slightly darker brown based nude. Both of the shades as you can see are really well pigmented.

They were also super velvety soft and blendable. My one complaint was that because they were so soft you did get a little bit of fallout. Here are a few examples of what the duo looks like on - the first set of pictures show how soft and a barely there these shadows could be

and the second picture shows the dominance of the darker shade - don't worry though this is still a soft wearable duo

I have to say I really liked this duo the colours were soft, pigmented and above all wearable. My only small gripes are with the fallout and maybe over the cardboard packaging which would start to look a bit tired after a while. Never the less if your looking to move into the natural make up sector you could do a lot worse than buy this duo, I now have the Ferns variant in my sights. The Living Nature Eye Shadow Duo in Beaches retails at £14.99 for 3g from My Pure. Any questions please ask x
